Hoya ‘Krimson Queen’: The Protector 

This plant symbolizes wealth and protection 

Key Benefits: Air Purifying

Hoya “Krimson Queen’ is an air-purifying house plant. It will remove pollutants from the air in your home, clearing toxins such as carbon monoxide, benzene and formaldehyde.

Is this the right plant for me?

You don’t need to be a top horticulturist to care for this plant. As long as you can position it in a warm spot that receives lots of bright, indirect or filtered sunlight, it should grow well in your home. As a trailing plant, it will do best on top of a shelf or within a hanging basket where its stems can hang down. Young leaves start growing in a shade of pink and variegate with cream and green as they mature. 

Plant Care Tips

  • Light: This plant likes bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid harsh, direct sunlight as this can cause scorching on the leaves. An east-facing room would be ideal. 
  • Water: The succulent leaves of this plant store water, meaning it has a medium-low watering requirement. Water once a week in the spring and summer months, once the top 5cm of soil has dried out. Water lightly throughout the winter. 
  • Soil: Plant in well-draining, well-aerated soil. Add sand or perlite to an all-purpose compost to improve its draining capacity. 
  • Humidity: Hoya ‘Krimson Queen’ likes humid conditions - ideally, above average levels. You may like to place the pot in a pebble tray to increase humidity.
  • Fertilizer: For optimum growth, feed with a liquid fertilizer once a month during the spring and summer. Halt this in the winter. 

Hoya ‘Krimson Queen’ Common Problems & Questions

How often should I re-pot my plant?

This plant likes to be on the pot-bound side of things, so you shouldn’t re-pot too often. Once every year or two should suffice. Gently lift the root ball from the pot to check the state of things before repotting. If you notice roots growing out from the drainage holes, re-pot the plant at this point. Up-size the pot by no more than 5cm each time. 

Why are the leaves of my Hoya ‘Krimson Queen’ turning brown?

With a Hoya, this is likely to be a symptom of overwatering. Too much water will cause the leaves to go mushy and brown. Make sure you check the moisture content of the soil each time you water by testing it with your finger. If the soil is still moist to the touch, refrain from watering for another few days. 

Is my Hoya ‘Krimson Queen’ susceptible to pests and diseases?

Common pests of this plant are mealy bugs, aphids and spider mites. In cases of infestation, isolate the plant and treat it with an insecticidal soap spray. You can prevent fungal infections by ensuring good airflow in the room and not overcrowding the plant. 

Why is my plant growing long stems without leaves?

No need to worry - this is actually just how the plant grows. The stems will grow first before the leaves show up. So, don’t cut back this bare stem, just be patient. If you like, it is easy to train these stems along a wall with some supports.
